Therapy that helps teens feel more confident in themselves

I help teens develop their voices, process their emotions, and think through their decisions. I work with adolescents on issues such as

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Anger expression

  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviors

  • Acting-out behaviors and aggression

  • Self harm

  • Alcohol and drug use

  • Low self esteem

  • Social media (over)usage

  • Bullying

  • Grief and loss

  • Serious illness in the family

  • Trauma

  • Perfectionism

  • College application anxiety

  • Low motivation

Talk therapy is most common at this stage. I also incorporate art materials and mindfulness techniques when appropriate.

As a parent, you are important

Parents are often not involved with their teen's treatment. At the same time, you are an important part of your adolescent's life. I meet with you before meeting your teen and check in periodically to collaborate and provide support. Together we will find new, constructive ways to communicate with your developing young adult.
